Glad to hear that.
I saw the session on Youtube and I disagree to a lot that was said. I
think it's good that things are not set in stone yet.

Fortunately I'm not *that* swamped any longer and I am currently working
on our trac to move the spin reviews from the wiki to the track

Makes sense, but IHMO dropping a spin will only make things
worse.Without live media, there is no easy way to test things and the in
the end, things that received little testing will be tested even less.
It seems that even KDE didn't get proper testing this time and I think
we all agree we cannot drop it.
No proper testing for KDE? Really?
I see quite a good coverage even for LXDE, Xfce and Sugar .
I think we need to work on fixing the process. Dropping a spin is only
the last resort.
